Angel, Islington

This historic landmark, is one of a series of buildings standing on the corner of Islington High Street and Pentonville Road.
Originally belonging to Clerkenwell Priory the land has had various properties on it since the 16thc. An inn on the site was called the "Angel Inn" by 1614, and the crossing became known as "the Angel". The site was bisected by the New Road, which opened in 1756, and properties on the site have been rebuilt several times up to the 20th century. The corner site gave its name to Angel tube station, opened in 1901, and the surrounding Angel area of London. The current structure was completed in 1903 and was known as the Angel Hotel. The building was acquired by J. Lyons and Co. in 1921 and was used as a restaurant.

This is the first age that's ever paid much attention to the future,
which is a little ironic since we may not have one..
